Chelsea have a must win fixture at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, as anything less than a win against the French side could throw Chelsea into the Europa League competition.

Chelsea enter this game in quite poor form as the Blues have won just one game of their last five matches in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Lille are coming to this game in good form having won their last three matches without conceding a goal.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has told his side that the key to winning this fixture is by scoring an early goal.

Lampard said: “Quite a lot of it has been chance conversion. Away from home we’ve wrapped up some goals and some really good performances. When you score early in the game at Burnley for instance, or Watford, it changes the face of the game.

“When you’re playing relatively well at home but don’t score for 45 minutes, which has been our problem in a lot of games, you add the pressure on yourself. We need to take our chances, especially ones that come early in the game. If you’ve got pressure, you need to convert it.”
